undisclosed fee......meaning some money has been spent on him, must be the first time that's happened for a long time.

To be honest I don't know much about him at the moment, I'm sure it won't be long before lots of info appears about him though.

When Phil Brown was asked about Stoica, he said he had never been in contact with him, and rumours he could move to Derby was rubbish.

From the official site...which has a bit about Thirwells career.


The former Sheffield United player joins Phil Brown's side for an undisclosed fee and brings with him experience of playing in the Premiership and international football.

He is being unveiled at a press conference which began at 1.20pm.

The Newcastle-born 26-year-old came through the ranks at Sunderland as a trainee, making his debut in the 1998-99 season when the Black Cats stormed their way to promotion from Division One.

He spent two months of the following season out on loan with Swindon Town but also made eight appearances as Sunderland enjoyed a solid season back in the top-flight.

Thirlwell's stock grew and he was selected for England U21s, for whom he made one appearance in August 2000 against Georgia.

A good passer of the ball who rarely wastes possession, Thirlwell was a regular Sunderland squad member for the next four seasons, before his release at the end of 2003-04 - ironically, after he had enjoyed his busiest campaign yet - making over 30 appearances.

The summer of 2004 saw him move to Sheffield United on a free transfer after seven seasons with Sunderland.

He scored one goal for Neil Warnock's side, a thumping volley from the edge of the box in a 3-3 draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and last season made 28 starts plus eight substitute appearances in all competitions

I know little about him, but he played 36 times last season for Sheff Utd, so he can't be that bad, and I did hear some rumours a few weeks ago, we might sign him.
